Legacies, the second spinoff to stem from The Vampire Diaries, has been canceled after a four-season run. The series, from creator Julie. Plec, was the last connective tissue to The Vampire Diaries, which at the time the flagship series launched in 2009, was The CW’s most-watched scripted series.
Neither Supernatural, nor The Flash, nor Legacies will be able to finish their current seasons in the timeframe that was originally planned. All three CW series were among hundreds that were forced to shutdown production due to coronavirus, meaning that they were unable complete shooting and their season endings have now been pushed to an undetermined time later in 2020, according to a source close to the network.
The CW on Thursday went on something of a renewal tear, picking up additional seasons of 10 current series — aka nearly its entire lineup. The list of shows confirmed to return for the 2019-20 TV season includes The Flash, Arrow, Riverdale, Supernatural, Supergirl, Black Lightning and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Freshman entries Charmed and Legacies also scored renewals, as did (wait for it) perpetual cellar-dweller Dynasty.
Charmed has received a back nine order, bringing its first season to 22 episodes total. Fellow freshman shows All American and Legacies have gotten picked up for three more episodes, meaning the first season of both shows will run for 16 episodes.
